Any conflict between Homeplug makes?

I have a homeplug home network using 2 homeplugs. I would now like to add another in another room, can I purchase any make or would it be best to buy the same make as my existing two? Thanks.

It would certainly be safer to stay with the same brand. While the connections between adapter and PC will necessarily use conventional ethernet in conjunction with TCP/IP (or other networking) protocol, there could be a proprietary system for the adapters themselves to communicate over the mains wiring. Different brands might therefore not communicate.

OK, thanks for that.

As long as they use the same 'protocols' then they will work together.

Obviously if a 14Mbps unit is used with an 85Mbps unit then the speed of the network will be that of the slowest unit.

It's a bit long winded but near the bottom it mentions the compatibility.
